My husband recently surprised me with a trip to Brazil for our anniversary. Imagine my delight when we arrived in Campos do Jordao, a charming "Swiss Village" in the mountains of Brazil, and more charming still at Arnaldo's property!! If we could give the property and the service we received 6 stars we would! We arrived after a very easy hour and a half drive from Sau Paulo airport along some of the best roads we have experienced in our travels. The house and grounds are absolutely lovely, surrounded by blooming hydrangeas, pine trees, and flowers of every type. Upon arrival we were greeted by Felix and his wife Neuza and introduced to the house and grounds with a tour and a wonderful welcome basket filled with wine and goodies. Payment was easy and secure in US dollars. The owner Arnaldo speaks English and is prompt to respond to any request. The house is beautiful, with a large family room complete with cozy fireplace and huge windows on three sides that open to the lawn. While there were only two of us and we loved the property as a couple, the house sleeps 12 and would be quite comfortable for large groups or families as well. We opted for full service which included house keeping, breakfast, and some meals. Felix and Neuza are some of the best cooks we have ever met!!!! We were lucky to have them prepare several typical Brazilian dishes for us and they were spectacular!!! Felix also helped us with tours and suggestions on things to do during our stay, sharing his home town with us. Arnaldo regularly checked in with us via phone and email to ensure our stay was wonderful, and provided great suggestions for restaurants and outings. They truly treated us like family and we will miss them!! We would absolutely recommend this destination and this property to anyone looking to get away and experience a different part of Brazil. We cannot wait to return to our new friends and our Brazilian home away from home!!!
